INTRODUCTION: Corneal infection is one of the major causes of monocular blindness in developing countries. OBJECTIVE: To determine the epidemiological characteristics, predisposing factors, microbiological pattern, sensitivity pattern and treatment outcome of microbial keratitis. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A retrospective analysis of hospital records of 414 patients with diagnosed infective keratitis was done. The outcome measures were microbial isolates, their sensitivity to therapeutic agents and treatment outcome...

PURPOSE: To investigate the clinical settings, treatment given, and visual outcomes for eyes with Pseudomonas aeruginosa endophthalmitis in Taiwan. METHODS: This is a retrospective, noncomparative, consecutive case series. Medical records were reviewed in 72 eyes of 71 patients with culture-proven P. aeruginosa endophthalmitis between January 1997 and December 2007. RESULTS: The clinical settings included keratitis/scleritis (44.4%), cataract surgery (15...

PURPOSE: To correlate the clinical presentation and treatment outcome of Nocardia keratitis with the time to diagnosis, different species and with the drug sensitivity pattern. METHOD: Patients with Nocardia corneal ulcers were studied at a tertiary eye care center. Speciation of Nocardia isolates was done by sequencing the 16s rRNA gene. Clinical response to treatment was assessed by chart review. RESULTS: Twenty one (65.3%) patients presented within 15 days of the onset of symptoms with typical clinical features of Nocardia keratitis, ie, a ring-like distribution of superficial infiltrates in a wreath pattern...

PURPOSE: To investigate clinical settings, management strategies, antibiotic sensitivities, and visual acuity outcomes of endophthalmitis caused by Streptococcus pneumoniae. DESIGN: Retrospective, observational case series. METHODS: Records were reviewed of all patients with culture-positive endophthalmitis caused by Streptococcus pneumoniae treated at the Bascom Palmer Eye Institute between January 1, 1989 and December 31, 2003. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Visual acuity and antibiotic sensitivities...

PURPOSE: To present the clinical profile, laboratory results, and outcome of treatment in 16 patients with Nocardia keratitis. METHODS: A retrospective review of 16 culture-proven cases of Nocardia keratitis was done. Clinical and microbiologic data were analyzed. RESULTS: Nocardia constituted 1.7% of laboratory-confirmed bacterial keratitis and was seen predominantly in male subjects (13 of 16) with a mean age of 39.1 years. Although the predisposing factor was unknown in the majority, a definite history of trauma was present in four (25%) cases...

PURPOSE: The common occurrence of failed medical treatment in microbial keratitis led us to investigate this phenomenon. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed all ulcers that presented to our department for 24 consecutive months. We classified each ulcer as either a therapeutic success or failure based on a precise definition of the response to initial antibiotic selection. We then analyzed multiple factors including: antibiotic selection, ophthalmic disease, ulcer characteristics, and management, to determine their significance in the success or failure in treating microbial keratitis...
